I am experiencing a typical problem since three days and i am unable to open hidden files on my pc. As usual i am trying to open the files thro' tools/folder options/view/hidden files and folders. after i select the radio button to show hidden files here the button goes back to do not show hidden files. This i have tried many times but not helpful. Pl help me.
It's possible that registry got corrupted. Have a look at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL modify the value for the key "CheckedValue" to 1 and "DefaultValue" to 2
Hi I do not know if this is what you have been trying but,
Click Start. Open My Computer. Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options. Select the View tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading SELECT Show hidden files and folders. UNCHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option. UNCHECK the Hide extensions for known file types option. Click Yes to confirm. Click OK
